Power to Change

Our vision is to create better places through community business. We will use our endowment to strengthen community businesses across England. This means providing money, advice and support to help local people come together to take control. At a time when many parts of the country face cuts, neglect and social problems, we want to make sure local areas survive and stay vibrant. We do so by being bold, collaborative, open and informed.

Activity Alliance

Disabled people are twice as likely to be physically inactive than non-disabled people. Activity Alliance works to make active lives possible. We enable organisations to support disabled people to be and stay active for life. As a national charity, we collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders. This includes leisure facilities, the Richmond Group of Charities, Public Health England and Royal College of Occupational Therapists. We also work with local and national health organisations to include disabled people more effectively. We provide a range of support and resources, including our Sport England funded Inclusive Activity Programme. Our knowledge and expertise helps others to deliver more inclusive and accessible programmes. Partnerships mean greater impact in health and wellbeing, enhancing more disabled people’s lives.

British Heart Foundation

Heart and circulatory diseases are the world’s biggest killers. That’s why we fund over £100 million of research each year into conditions like heart attacks and heart failure, stroke, vascular dementia and their risk factors like diabetes and high blood pressure. We’ve used the research we have funded to develop best practice programmes that have transformed the care of people affected by heart and circulatory diseases, so we can end the heartbreak these conditions cause.

HealthUnlocked

We are the world's largest social network for health, with 1 million members across the globe, and growing. We connect people with the same health conditions, where they can share experiences and get answers to questions about their chronic conditions and wellbeing needs - empowering people with knowledge for enhanced self-care.

Macmillan Cancer Support

Why we exist

We’re here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support. We'll be there for everyone, either through one of our services, or by pointing them in the right direction. So whatever cancer throws their way, we'll be right there with them.

What we Do

Everything we do is to help everyone living with cancer to live life as fully as they can. Our allied health professionals (AHPs), nurses, support specialists and services work directly with people with cancer, their families and loved ones every day. And we also aim to keep cancer at the top of the agenda by influencing others and heightening awareness of the issues involved. We raise money to make all our work possible.

These activities are how we deliver our strategy, ensuring we give people living with cancer the support they need, when they need it and in the way that suits them best.
  • We provide services
  • We influence others
  • We raise money

Pancreatic Cancer Action

Pancreatic Cancer Action is a national charity dedicated to saving lives through early diagnosis and improving the quality of life for those affected by pancreatic cancer. Founded by a pancreatic cancer survivor, who proves that early diagnosis is achievable, and survival is possible, Pancreatic Cancer Action’s vision is a day when everyone is diagnosed early and survives pancreatic cancer.

The King's Fund

The King’s Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England.

Our mission describes how we will achieve this:
  • through our research and policy analysis
  • through the work we do with individuals, organisations and communities building their capability, supporting them to adopt best practice and share learning
  • by bringing people together through events and networks to discuss and learn from evidence from the United Kingdom and across the world
  • by promoting greater understanding of health and care policy and practice – helping people to make sense of a complex and rapidly changing environment.
